Since last fill I had driven around locally in lucan and over and back to ashtown, and then up to Fanad with car fully loaded (3 bikes, 3 bbqs, firepit, loads of bags)

Filled up in Topaz, Lucan village. Gauge was showing near empty but car had only done 737 km but more city driving than usual. Managed to put in 54.61 by brimming it so in theory there was still 7 litres in the car. After filling up we drove to Kildare village outlet as Maire was meeting Frances, and from there we headed on to Ballincollig (car/boot was empty), we then filled up car with all the baby stuff and drove back. Drove pretty steady throughout but gauge did seem to be going down quicker than usual (from what I rem). By the time we got home gauge was showing only a quarter tank left and estimating 310km (having done 510km), we drove to get groceries, I drove to asto, Maire drove my car to S'ford with Aoife and Siobhnain to check out an xc60 in Spirit, to Milltown to collect stuff for for Aine's hen, then into town and Siobhan drove it home on the sunday when fuel light came on indicating 80km, Maire drove it to school a couple of days as she was going to Coombe after and I was throwing bike in back. On Saturday 10/10/2015, I was drove to Clondalkin to drop in Stained glass panel form front door and on way back car was showing a range of 0km but I thought I should have enough to get to Maxol in Lucan village (even though I passed a cheap Applegreen in Clondalkin, as trip computer was showing that I had covered 740km and i was sure it'd make 750km at least however, car seemed to be a little spluttery as if it was very low so I made it to Foxhunter and filled up there rather than risk running out

Filled up in Applegreen, Port Rd, Letterkenny. Had done 800km and tank was estimating another 40km til empty but next station in Republic was Lifford and I knew applegreen was cheap and had subway (I was hungry). Pump cut out at 50 odd but squeezed in 52 and thought I'd try for 53 but it was brimmed at 52.17. When I started car gauge wasn't showing completely full (but it was cos I had brimmed it to point it was spilling). Drove back to Lucan (just me and Maire and full boot), drove steady. No long runs. Drove for short spins for hikes in Dublin mountains, to get groceries a few times, to astro a couple of times, Maire drove it to school and back for one week while her car was laid up beofre we could drop it in. Also the car got serviced. The gauge was showing near empty when car had only done 737km which is way down but then it had been doing shorter spins.

Filled up in Maxol in Lucan after parkrun, on board computer had been estimating 0km left in tank on way over to parkrun that morning. I absolutley brimmed the car by putting in 55.12 (cos) it was spilling out, so in theory as in it is an 63l tank, there should be another 8l in the tank which should be enough for another 100 km mixed driving (more if just motorway). Since the last fill, I had driven around fanad a bit, in and out of letterkenny one, fanad to dbo 9and experienced a loss of power which could be due to MAF and effect the fuel efficency, then dbo to lucan. The car was well loaded up for some of the time and towbar and bike rack is in the boot along with other stuff all the time. After the fill OBC was estimating 880km until next fill. I reckon when OBC shows its time to fill next time, there will still be 8L of fuel in tank so should be able to try and push for 850km next time

Filled up in Topaz in MIchelstown on way home from ballincollig. Trip computer was estimating another 10km before I needed to re-fuel. Managed to squeeze in 54.52 by absolutely brimming it. Since the last fill up, Máire had used my car to commute to work and go to gym as her car needed new battery. I used it for a few local runs (parkrun, groceries, B&Q etc). The headed to ballincollig on Friday 21/11/2014 with boot full of usual stuff, and our luggage and a box of books for maire to correct, On way back we also had fionnoula's stuff and her. Drove at 120-140kmh most of the way on motorway. I think the short runs when Maire used car really impacted on the economy of the last tank. When we retuned on sunday evening, we had done just over 200km and computer was saying car would go another 800km before needing a fill (it had used just shy of a quarter tank to do 200km, which suggests that it would do just over 800km to a tank

Filled up in Westport on way to Belmullet (first long spin in new car). Had done a bit of pottering about in it in Dublin. Wasn't sure how big tank was or how many miles it would do after light came on and didn't want to take any chances so filled up soon after light came on. Managed to squeeze in 52 litres. I've since learned that it has a 62l tank. I then drove from westport to Belmullet and from hotel to church and back on the saturday and back to Lucan (approx 400km) and it had used about a quarter tank I think)
